Kermit’s Pool entices you to dive right in.
With such breathtaking scenery, it’s no wonder the gorges of Karijini are popular with hikers and explorers. But, be warned, they can be as treacherous as they are beautiful. According to local police, accidents frequently occur along the steep gorges. In 2012, a woman in her 50s had to be winched out after falling while hiking near a pool. And in 2011, a tragic incident claimed the life of 31-year-old hiker Christopher Majewski and critically injured his seven-year-old son.
